EARTH DAY EXPO APRIL 13
EARTH DAY EXPO:
The theme for Earth Day 2019 is “endangered species.” As recent UN and U.S. climate reports warn, we take action now or face consequences -- soon. We no longer have decades to act. On Saturday, April 13, DC 37 is holding an Earth Day Expo at union headquarters from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., to discuss and debate the vital climate issues that we face. Scientists, elected officials, environmental organizations, and activists young and old are coming together to share knowledge and chart a course of advocacy. Come here panels on Creating Good Green Union Jobs, the Green New Deal, Sustainability & NYC, and Youth, Grassroots & Students in the Climate Movement. Join us on April 13 to become part of the solution, and plan to celebrate Earth Day on Monday, April 22. Please register here to attend: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/dc-37-earth-day-expo-tickets-57452631367

Sisters and brothers in today’s labor movement are invited to lean in at a special International Women’s Month event presented by the DC 37 Women’s Committee as Local 420 President Carmen Charles hosts an evening of conversation with Hazel Dukes, president of the NAACP NY Conference, on Friday, March 15 at union headquarters from 6 to 8 p.m.
Ms. Dukes blazed trails in New York suburbs fighting poverty, housing discrimination and racial bias. She cracked the glass ceiling as the first woman president of a statewide chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and was the first black woman to head NYC OTB. Ms. Dukes is a longtime ally and advocate on issues important to DC 37 and labor unions.
Unabashed and unapologetic, Hazel Dukes is a vibrant octogenarian who continues to fight for access to better education, quality health care and vital public services for all New Yorkers.
